There has been mention of paint and clear coat. Rmp does improve paint but it really excells on oxidized gel coat. This product was first introduced by boating folks with oxidized water craft. Been on my rig for 1 1/2 years. While scrubbing off bugs on front cap, I rubbed through RMP. Old dull oxidized finish popped through. Just recoated that area. SHINE, SHINE,SHINE!

I did the treatment and was wondering what everyone is using to wash their rigs after the treatment. I'm worried about washing off the finish.

Soap and water will do just fine.

Use a regular car wash soap, they generally don't spot or leave a film.

Agree!!

I used Comet on the streaks, Dawn and TSP for the balance to remove waxes.

I did the ZEP treatment on mine 18 months ago and wash it with detergent and water. Still nice and shiny and no need to apply another coat yet.

I use Dawn dish washing detergent. Car wash will be OK but avoid the car wash soaps that include any kind of wax. If it leaves a wax film on the acrylic coating, the annual maintenance coat won't want to stick to the surface.

I visited the Meguiar's website. I don't see anywhere that this wash contains wax so I would think it is OK.

Fixing to zep wet look mine in about 2 weeks when I get back from a short trip. I plan on using Dawn to wash it with after treating as it needs washing. Dawn is an amazing product. Next time you get your hands really dirty,greasy, or get paint on them, try washing with Dawn.
